The integration of a continuously growing solar (PV) and wind energy share into our today’s and tomorrow’s energy sectors is one of the great challenges for sustainable societies.
Especially the flexibilisation of energy consumers is taken as one of the key solutions for a cost-efficient system integration of fluctuating renewable energies.
2020, December, 5th Arab Water Forum in Abu Dhabi/UAE
